Our company is slowly but surely moving towards using only Adobe Cloud fonts in our work flow. One of our new team members is having trouble with our (very old, very over-copied) versions of Zapf Dingbats and Wingdings. Are there equivilents to the Zapf Dingbat or Wingding fonts on the Cloud?

Moved to Adobe Fonts community since this isn't a general Type & Typography question.

Look for fonts with unicode support. Any font supporting the unicode range U+2700 – U+27BF has dingbats built-in. Source Sans is one, and there are probably others.

 

Be aware that if you are using fonts produced by font foundaries other than Adobe, the font foundary may remove their fonts from Adobe Fonts. This happened with 2 or 3 foundaries back in May, and it has caused a lot of upset. For any font you want to use, particularly for branding purposes, you might want to look into getting a license from the owning foundary.
